The 39 Steps ~ A play that will have you laughing all night

CSC logo

I recently attended a blogger event where I got to preview the play “The 39 Steps” at the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company for a blogger event. “The 39 Steps” is adapted by Patrick Barlow, from the novel by John Buchan, from the movie of Alfred Hitchcock.

I was not familar with the play, but was pleasantly surprised by how funny it was! I mean BIG SMILES and LAUGH OUT LOUD FUNNY!!!!!


Here is a little more about the show:

This runaway Broadway hit lands at CSC this summer.Alfred Hitchcock’s classic potboiler gets a tongue-in-cheek twist as four actors rocket their way through over 100 roles in a blood-tingling, and hilarious, tale of espionage and murder.



Cincinnati audiences have raved about productions of “Every Christmas Story Ever Told” and “The Hound of the Baskervilles” that also feature small casts covering multiple characters in mystery-comedy adventures. They will not be disappointed by “The 39 Steps”. It’ll be an evening of comedy…to die for.



The four actors did an absolutely incredible job of playing multiple roles with ease. This production is directed by CSC Producing Artistic Director,Brian Isaac Phillips and features CSC Resident Ensemble members, Billy Chace, Justin McCombs, Miranda McGee and Nicholas Rose. Each of the actors transitioned from various characters with different accents and costume changes that each brought another dimension to the play.






Don’t miss out on this play that combines mystery with A LOT of humor!
